    Sure, there’s support staff to do tasks for the brokers.

    Goodness, yes! Less training: support staff, maintenance.

    More training: property management, title company, education…

    I am a mortgage broker in the NYC Metropolitan area. I enjoy what I do because I can make my own hours and the compensation is very competitive. Depending upon the average cost of a property in your area you would only need to close 1-3 deals each month to maintain a comfortable lifestyle. There will always be a need for money, hence there is an inexhaustible demand for what a mortgage bank such as mine does. Finding the niche in a particular RE market and reaching it is the most challenging part of my work.

    I work regularly to meet the needs of other players in the real estate industry including but not limited to lawyers, brokers, appraisers, investors, accountants, construction contractors, superintendents, rental agencies and landlords in order to serve my clients efficiently and effectively.

    Hope that you found this helpful. All the best in your search.
